UK: Manchester Attracts £61 Million of Conference Business for 2015

Manchester is gearing up to host more than 34,000 delegates across 40 association conferences.

Working with key academic, venue and hotel partners, Marketing Manchester has attracted 18 national and 22 international conferences to the city in 2015, equating to around 34,000 delegates and an estimated economic impact of £61 million.

Scientific meetings look set to play a significant role in 2015 with a host of national healthcare conferences visiting the city, which currently holds the title of ‘European City of Science’ in preparation for 2016’s EuroScience Open Forum.

Nick Brooks-Sykes, director of tourism at Marketing Manchester said: “With 18 national and 22 international conferences secured, Manchester’s objective to target, and bid for, more association business through the ‘team Manchester’ partnership is proving very successful.

“The value of these conferences extends much further than simply the monetary value. Association meetings attract some of the world’s leading minds to come together to discuss particular subjects, helping Manchester to become known for intellect and knowledge whilst boosting our key sectors.”
